Default Looking for large scale realistic looking bodies. Are there any

Hi there, I'm new around here and I'm looking for large scale 1/6 or 1/5 bodies that look like real street cars as opposed to racing cars.
One of the cars I'm looking for is an Audi A4 20052008. I found the FG but it has spoilers and weird wheel arches that would be hard to modify to look like a normal Audi. Does anybody know any A4 bodies that look normal or would be easy to modify? I found BMWS, Alfas and many other European contemporary cars that look normal, but not Audi. Am A6 could also do as long as is a sedan/saloon.


The second type of body I'm looking for are European cars from the late 60's to mid 70's. I'm also trying to find a Cortina or Taunus MK3 but no luck.


Any help will be greatly appreciated. I've been all over the internet and found a couple of things but nothing that I' looking for.


Thanks a lot!

Hi! I have never come across any Audi's except from what you are mentioning here, but i might have seen some Audi 100 a loong time ago (those "newer" made in the early 90's), but i guess these are pretty rare.

Over to what i like the most, cars from the era when cars where cars I have not seen any of the Taunus or Cortinas, the closest in 1/5-scale to these is the Escort mk2 (thread here) which i not long ago received in the mail from Spitfire I have seen Cortina mk1 in 1/10 scale, but this is also the only one i have ever seen in rc.

If that Escort was a MKI I think it could be closer to the Cortina or Taunus. But as it is I think it's too boxy. I once saw an Opel Rekord in 1/5 but now I can't find it anymore. Any ideas?

I only know of Opel Kadett GT/E and Opel Commodore in 1/5 scale, in addition to the Astra BTCC or whatever it is.

Well, maybe it was 1/8 then, not sure. But I seem to remember an Opel Rekord C or something in large scale RC.

Do you know any of the old/classic cars I mentioned in any RC scale at all?

If Cortina mk1 i know about one that makes them, but if you mean the late Cortina that "went over" in Taunus i havent seen any. But have a look at Kamtec, thay make a lot of different cars. Here is the Commodore i was talking about by the way.

That Commodore could have looked really nice if it wasn't for the goofy toyish wheel arches. Pity.

I thinking what could be the best 1/5 body to use as a base to make a Taunus or Cortina MK3 (TC1)?
